Trying Crimes Against Humanity

When Saddam Hussein was tried in Baghdad, he refused to recognize the legitimacy of the court. Years earlier, Slobodan Milosevic did the same at The Hague. Two new war crimes trials are set to begin this month--one in Cambodia against former members of the Khmer Rouge and another in Europe against Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic. The threat of debilitating protests by the defendants hangs over both trials. A group of international war crimes lawyers is in Cleveland this week to preview the trials, and they'll join us Tuesday morning at 9 for a conversation about why war crimes trials are important for humankind.
